We know from top sources that Olympus will launch a new 25mm f/1.2 lens this year. One of the sources told me that there could be a short delay with the lens announcement. The lens was expected to be announced this summer. Now the best bet for the announcement is September (Photokina).

But before that lens Olympus will definitely launch the already leaked 30mm f/3.5 macro lens.

Bit of history: Olympus OM system had two f/1.2 lenses: The [shoplink 56524 ebay]50mm f/1.2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink] and the [shoplink 56525 ebay]55mm f/1.2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink].
